last night,
you kissed my fingertips
one by one
and promised you’d never leave
again.

last night,
you kissed my forehead
as you reached out
and tentatively caressed my
aching heart.

but you wound a noose
of pretty roses
around my neck while i slept,
and when morning came, you had vanished.

when morning came,
i hung.
a poem by me.

Nice work, and congrats on the achievement. I've never done anything like poetry before, but reading your work kinda made me wonder if I could pull it off. I'm a writer by hobby, but a coal miner by profession, with a dream of what possibilities may some day be. So, I'll let you tell me what you think or if this holds promise. This one's for you Luxwar.

The morning crept over my face

My dream-swept fingers reaching for yours

My heart bloomed in verdant promises made in the night’s passions.

 

Last night you lovingly caressed my soul

We shared a true embrace that promised eternity’s bliss

Each weighted breath, sigh of release, and gasp of elation shared as one.

 

But my eyes opened and you’d left me once again

My heart’s song turned to deep aching tears of deafeningly silent doubt

I question, I ask, I ponder ever more so each time I think of you

 

Will you stay with me this next time

Or will I drown in your arms again.

I love everything to do with rose imagery, and I love your twist of turning a romantic symbol into something deadly.  Nicely done!
